Here’s What $550,000 Buys in Cambridge and Somerville Right Now

31 Fulkerson Street #2, Cambridge

    Here's What $550,000 Buys in Cambridge and Somerville Right Now
    Hint: It's not very much. If you lived somewhere else-somewhere far, far away-$550,000 might buy you a generously sized house with a yard and maybe a garage. But in Cambridge and Somerville, that price tag won't get you a house at all. Rather, $550,000 is the price of an awfully small condo.
